Thanks for the reply,
    Its a 2000 S4 tip at 53k. I'm somewhat torn between doing it myself 
and having someone else do it, although since the dealers in my area 
give a new meaning to horrible I  will probably stay away from them for 
all but warranty work(MAF). As for the oil leak it seams to be coming 
from near the front passenger side - after rereading the initial email 
you said the tensioner on the passenger side is in the rear so maybe its 
just the valve cover gasket. According to my VAG-COM I'm also getting an 
intermittent resistance too high code(I don't have the exact code here 
at the moment) from my B1S1(IIRC) sensor as well - is that covered by 
the extended emissions warranty? At any rate whatever times you can up 
with would be helpful - generally if I do it myself I consider myself 
lucky if it only takes twice as long the first time but its also good 
for keeping the shops in line.
